Good afternoon all, I hope everyone is well and having an alright (if a little rough) start back to work this week. We’re all doing quite well in the Komplett office, for what it’s worth. Anyway, for those just joining us now, we like to post our special offers for the coming week on a Monday afternoon, just to make sure that you guys have as long as possible to consider them before the offers end.
It’s on of those win-win situations 🙂
We won’t get too bogged down in all that for now, this week’s offers are pretty interesting, hopefully you’ll find something you like.
Nintendo’s DS line broke the record for the highest number of a games consoles sold in a month (it just so happened that in the same month, the Wii broke that record too). Clearly it’s a device that’s not only incredibly popular, but continuing to sell to new customers.
For those of you who haven’t used a DSi yet, it’s functionally very much like an old Gameboy, though with a clamshell design and two 3.25” screens. The lower screen is touch-sensitive, and there’s a stylus included with the device. It also boasts two cameras, which tie in to various games, as well as Facebook. It’s a relatively simple little machine, but has enough of a range of games to provide some solid entertainment.
We’ve got a bit of a soft spot for Nintendo’s DS line, even if it is based on bitter intra-office rivalries of Mariokart DS and Pokémon… the important thing to remember isn’t that it’s okay to play games as an adult; it’s that Ryan cheats at Mariokart. I don’t know how, I don’t know why, he just does.
Our bitter feuds aside, Nintendo’s DSi is dropped to €147 this week.
The DSi is also available in black, for those who want to have it match their existing bits and pieces or wardrobe.
WD My Passport Essential SE:
Western Digital’s Passport line is among our best selling portable hard drives, thanks in no small part to their combination of simple, elegant exterior and a reliable drive on the inside.
The WD Passports used to top out at 500GB, so this 750GB model is a relatively new addition. It retains the nice, curved and pocketable form factor, not too much bigger than a phone or (coincidentally enough) a Nintendo DS Lite. For those looking for something a little more exact, its around 11cm x 8.3cm x 1.8cm. The drive itself weighs in at 200g and this model is a simple, glossy black.
Western Digital’s My Passport Essential SE a relatively straightforward device, knocked down by a little over 10% to €119 for this week. The Apple users among you will be pleased to hear that it’ll work with Mac OS X too.
Hitachi Deskstar 2TB:
For those who absolutely, positively just can’t bring themselves to delete anything, then it’s worth considering picking up a nice 2TB internal drive for your desktop.
Hitachi’s Deskstar 7K2000 is a 3.5” 2TB drive that spins at 7200RPM, boasts a 32MB cache and, as well you might expect, connects via SATA. Of course, 2TB of data is a heavy-duty amount to risk should a drive up and fail on you without warning. Anyone considering picking one up would probably do well to pick up a second, to keep a good backup on (do people keep backups these days? It seems an increasingly rare thing to hear about).
For anyone who might want more details, you can check out our detailed product tab for the drive.
Anyway, this week the 2TB Hitachi Deskstar is reduced to €135, which isn’t bad at all.
